Docbook is broken, where do I ask for help? Bug#318817


I'm running Debian Sarge, having started maybe
a year ago when it was still testing.  Some
months ago docbook broke.  I worked around it
for a while but eventually filed a bug report:


  When I generate any sort of output from docbook I get
  the message:

  I/O error : Attempt to load network entity

(And, I can't generate pdf output.)

Although I apparently did not file it for the right
package the maintainer helped me anyway, reaching
the conclusion that a catalog was not right.

Here's the md5sum for my catalog, I'd appreciate
knowing if it's different from anybody else's

$ md5sum /usr/share/xml/docbook/schema/dtd/4.3/catalog.xml
38f29b4ec05fa3341d37690bd2605120 /usr/share/xml/docbook/schema/dtd/4.3/catalog.xml

The bug supposedly got transferred to the right
maintainer, but it was closed by the original maintainer
when he found the problem was not in his package.

I don't want to keep submitting the same bug over
and over to different packages until I get lucky.

What should I do?  Do other Sarge users have
problems with docbook/xmlto/xsltproc?
I suspect maybe there's just a dependency that's
not installed (and not recommended by the installed

I really do need to get docbook working.

Thanks for the help.
